Keep Kids Safe License Plates


Change Your Plate and Change a Child’s Life.

You can change child abuse in your community by changing your license plate.  In championing Oregon’s children with the purchase of a Keep Kids Safe license plate, you become a partner in working to erase the problems that lead to abuse and neglect.

BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW.  In order to keep the Keep Kids Safe License Plate Program as a sustainable source of funding, we must reach our 500 PLATE MINIMUM by OCTOBER 31, 2014.

As a supporter of child abuse prevention services through the Keep Kids Safe plates, a surcharge for your new license plates is collected at issuance ($30 for a two-year registration period or $60 for a 4-year new vehicle registration) and at each subsequent renewal of your car registration.  ALL PROCEEDS FROM YOUR SURCHARGE go directly toward life-saving services for children and families in crisis.  In this way, we are working together to provide every Oregon child with a safe and healthy environment in which to grow.

Will you help make a difference in a child’s life today?  Here’s how…
